DIY: HOW TO REUPHOLSTER A CHAIR | Taylor Alyce


Today, I took a shot at reupholstering a chair that I bought from Goodwill! I’m not an expert. I have not followed any instruction, nor have I done this before. I simply just paid attention to how I took it apart and put it back together in a similar way..but with my own twist! Enjoy!

Materials used:
-Chair (Goodwill)
-3 yards of upholstery fabric
-Paint (Paintbrushes, etc.)
-Heavy duty staple gun meant for 1/2″ staples
-1/2″ staples
-Decorative Rivets
-Hot glue/ Hot glue gun
-Sandpaper
-Pliers
-Hammer
*You may need to buy new batting depending on the condition of the old batting

*Disclaimer: the scene explaining how I did the back of the chair, unfortunately, got deleted. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, however, the whole purpose of trying something new is to learn and make mistakes. No matter what chair you have, it will most likely be different than the one I had and you’ll have to try out new techniques to finish it anyway. This whole project for me was to get out of my comfort zone and learn a new skill without prior knowledge of how to upholster. I hope that you take chances on your own project as well. Be daring. Thank you for your overall support!
